Multi-award-winning rapper, Sarkodie has disclosed that his decade-long success in the music scene is a result of keeping clear off public critics. He neither listens to what the critics say nor does he take endorsements from people.
Sarkodie recognizes that the music industry is a messy world and only the tough ones survive. As a result, he advises artists willing to break through to grow tough skin, believe in their craft, and move with their pace. As the scene is always full of critics who are quick to judge the work of artists right from the start of their careers, some would even get to the extent of criticizing your personal life.
In a recent interview with GhanaWeb, the king of rap shared ‘ A lot of artists fell off by listening to what people were saying. I have listened to what sometimes Ghanaians say, in a certain year you would have a very dark year. They will say stuff that if you are not strong, it can break you down. I don’t, I still keep the passion I have for music, I still have boundaries to break, I trust the pace and I will still go,’’
He further added that as much as Ghanaians back him up, he is one who would always blow his own trumpet .’I am the type of person who doesn’t wait for that because I know that can break me. I don’t take my endorsement from humans ..whether you give me the fans or not, I will still do me’
